Well I picked up my Xbox last night. EB made it easy as it was only a 15 minute process. Across the street at Target fools were outside in full camping gear. I said to someone at EB, they only have a few minutes more to go. He said, "Target opens at 8 am tomorrow." That's crazy shi!!!. Half the guys there were flipping them on Ebay for a quick $200 profit. I also picked up Madden, Call Of Duty and Tiger, 2nd wireless controller.... Can you say $700???
I get the thing home and here are some interesting notes. The Box was heavy as fuc$... The deluxe Xbox is heavy itself but I figured out how they saved some space. The ac adapter or whatever it is that goes between the outlet and Xbox is fricken huge!!!! It must be 10 inches long by 3X3!!!
I also felt the HD cables were kind of cheap, look good but I think I had the monster kit on my last one.
I have to say I am really dissapointed in Madden. Graphics looked great but they sacrificed gameplay and features. It's such a different game than the previous 06'. Strange thing, Madden does not even announce on this one.
Tiger looked awesome. Good game play. Call Of Duty, two thumbs up. The HD on these games looks better than the original. Surround sound in Call Of Duty is great.
Best feature so far is the wireless remotes. Power your remote, the Xbox powers on. Power your remote down, the Xbox also powers down. Plus you can down load MP3's and play them during any game.
Is it worth 600 - $700.. Time will tell. I thought about flipping it on Ebay, I should have reserved two...
Halo 3 better kick as$...
